Hi, how do you figure out sales tax on a lease? I live in NY and currently have a deal on the table but sales tax seems off. Sale price is 36,868

    In NYS, take the sum of your lease payments, plus any taxable amounts paid upfront (cap cost reductions, acquisition fee, etc), and multiply by the tax rate. That amount is paid upfront to the state. You can pay that amount, or roll it into the CAP cost and monthly payment.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    New York is a bit peculiar--it's one of the few states that requires you to pay the entire sales tax up front, rather than as part of each monthly payment. Is that what's confusing you?

    Well do you pay state and county tax rate or just the state

    The total tax rate should include both state and county level assessments. It varies, of course, but I've seen 8.875% in and around NYC.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and let us know! Post a pic of your new purchase or lease!
